Selma who is bicolour in red and white and her sister Silva, whose coat is tortoiseshell. They are now 12 weeks old and both oh so adorable! From the beginning we wanted two kittens, but the breeder Arja / Haaveeni Cattery, Hämeenlinna said that they were all reserved. She was thinking of keeping Silva herself, but the day before yesterday she called and said that she can’t separate these two, because they are such good pals and play and sleep together. I am so happy with her decision.
Photos are taken by the cattery lady Arja, but I am allowed to share them. She shares every week new photos of Aasa's six beautiful kittens on Facebook, it kind of shortens the waiting. We can go and get Selma & Silva home over the weekend 11th -12th of December. And now a lot of kitten photos, hope you enjoy!
❤︎ Selma & Silva ❤︎
Have a splendid weekend!
Thank you for all the lovely comments you leave week after week at Friday Bliss.
I have been experiencing difficulties in commenting on several blogs.
This problem has appeared for a few days now. Just to let you know.
I went to see Björn Weckström's (b. 1935) life work exhibition MAN, MACHINE AND JEWELLERYat the Didrichsen Art Museum.The exhibition was supposed to happen already last year in the artist’s 85th anniversary year, but luckily it could be opened now.I didn't know much about Weckström's life.I only knew him as a pioneering jewellery designer from the days of Lapponia Jewelry, but these human-sized mythical bronze figures were new to me.They are mindboggling, dramatic and, of course, stunning, but I find them pretty scary.Here's how Didrichsen's website says:
In Weckström's works, the myths of antiquity meet the scientific achievements and fantasies of our time - the conquest of space, genetic manipulation and the revolution of machines.The large, shiny bronze sculptures of the exhibition from the 1980s and 1990s, machine people, are like a vision of a future driven by technological development.
The jewellery exhibition features 86 pieces from Weckström's career.Included is one of the artist’s best-known jewels, the Planetoid Valleys Necklace seen in the first Star Wars film.Weckström has designed his most famous jewellery for the Finnish Lapponia Jewelry, which is now owned by Kalevala Koru Oy.
Weckström’s small marble and glass sculptures were sympathetic and approachable.
The exhibition includeda series of stunning Stonehenge sculptures.
He has written a biography called The Designer of Myths (Bazar 2018).
The book is available in Finnish and Swedish.
"In his autobiography, Björn Weckström talks about the origins of his works and how they were receivedas well as interesting turning points in his career.As an artist, he has been a forerunner,whose works have often been ahead of their time.Probably the most familiar to the general public are golden Lapponia jewels and the silver necklage Planetoid Valleys of Princess Leia in Star Wars.Completely another size is represented by large sizesbronze sculptures depicting man, many of whom were inspired by ancient mythsin his Italian studio.”
